Project Information

8" beaded rim wedding plate
Basswood
Gel stain, sealer, satin lacquer

I adapted a pattern from Tatiana Baldina to use on this plate. For the rim and back I first applied a gel stain, then applied the pattern and carved through the stain to leave the white chips underneath. After the carving was completed I applied one coat of Seal Coat Sanding Sealer followed by three coats of spray satin lacquer.

I hope Stefanie and Ricky will remember their wedding vows every time they see this plate.

Thanks for looking!
Marty

That"s a really wonderful plate. I am always in awe of people who can do such wonderfully skilled chip carving. I've given it a shot by taking an introductory course that was held at a woodworking club I belonged to a few years back but couldn't quite get the hang of it. I'm truly jealous of your talent.
